This is a starting point for discussion, research, and development of autopilots for vehicles on land, sea, and air.
There is a mailing list for discussion of these issues at http://reality.sculptors.com/lists.html#autopilot and there are online archives at http://reality.sculptors.com/~hyprmail/autopilot/
We need to outline a [Design Framework]? for creating autopilots, listing features, functions, concerns, etc.
We should also develop a distributed-computing software package that can run the trillions(more?) of simulations that will be needed to develop a safe vehicle autopilot system. Some details about this concept can be found in the archives, above, and will be expanded here as time goes on.
Please add to these pages. :-)
